Just do now their franchise.

Our number two returns and show is on the year 844204 reaches the number to dial here on the program Matthew Stafford you be joining us in a matter of moments here on this show. He's going to be taking on the San Francisco hundred huge Monday Night Football game we just previewed the Thursday night game. Moments ago between two and borrow dolphins and bangles and those guys have any history together into having had his entire program or to the state, seen through the prism of the immediate success of Justin Herbert and then ultimate success within two years getting to the Super Bowl and Joe borrowed the fact that he walks in as a three and oh quarterback the only one in the AFC's got a feel good for him and it is a big game, certainly for the dolphins if they can follow up that huge win over the bills and just four days.

A short week after 100 weather on the field in Miami, a playoff game that was very entertaining. It doesn't affect a playoff game for anything. We just all that if you missed it, stick around right here on the Roku channel channel to Tanner show arrears. As soon as we are done.

Hour three is Josh Duhamel I mentioned that Matthew Stafford's coming up on this program in just a matter of moments, but we turn to the Mercedes-Benz vans phone line and find the subject of this week's episode of NFL icons which is in NFL films produced in epics produced and broadcast show every Saturday night at 10 Eastern on epics. It is awesome. I am honored to be narrating it is as good as anything that NFL films is put together and the subject matter of this week October 1 Saturday night 10 Eastern NFL icons Steve Young joining us here on the recharges writing when Steve Gray regarding voting better talking to you man what you about it is just an amazing journey in tonight's game. Like I mentioned mature his journey and that's that's what I love about journeys, Joe Burroughs journey from from the state of Ohio. Were you know what is whole journey. Yours is incredible you ever sit back and think man I iPod I can't believe I did that was probably that Richard forks in the road where you don't really have a choice. No one looks go, will turn to me as a freshman in college you got at the coordinator of people you the time and you know my name and you really know they are getting really recruited me, and by November he knew my name and he stood call me more. I talked and by the way, I don't coach Lexi and you like all right like at the end of my writing career you are you and luckily he left two months later for head coaching job at Citigroup state in selecting the opportunity to tell came in and then another history but it's like those binary moments right where your cultural hefty that the man and I like 20 of those were, you know, if it doesn't go the right way, you don't. No matter how you feel about it. Things are going to work out and ended so anyway you look back on the I want to go back there with goodie like wow that is crazy yes believe all that they did happen, and I'm grateful for all the you start to see how grateful you are for all the people that were there, angels along the way it accomplished you in a direction coaches good news. The friends of the people that kinda move your lawn to Your character from problems and get You out of trouble and all that stuff you look back on when these kind of moments with you when you wanted start from the end I completely agree with how much knowledge, overwhelming to think about being very rarely, when I'm reading a script that NFL stones gives me service for anything, let alone NFL icons Steve. I'm wondering if there's a typo on it what what were you on the depth chart at BYU.

At one point during the rich remember making a day and maybe Stanford a little bit and University of for the landline Florida. They were the only school that threw the ball and were getting guys kind of ready quote ready for the pros that will turn the wishbone split a clear option. Some version of you know, kind of a option game and so I had this crazy dream that I wanted to play pro football wanted to throw it in college and so BYU was the place to be and they had who knew there were eight other guys who also felt that time that I was a I would think because none of the alphabetical part of it all. This must be a that's why am I not know what yes all the names are still in my mind all the guys in front of the end and by the time. To tell the jury of the winter time and I was working with Tom almost plain safety because they they move because they couldn't go to lefty and then when he showed up in that way why you work out your Cotabato Islamic because they must be stupid again. The spring ball. He convinced Lavell Edwards their coach. They look this gives the young couple weeks what's to happen by in a couple weeks I was back after the incoming sophomore Sullivan and then and how did you get dressed like walk me through Steve Young to your drafting professionally and what happened with the separate leagues of the time and how that all worked out for yo are you about became that year all the owners greatly got out of the euro they realized that they could. They were entrenched. They had the that the attendant they had the TV.

Now they are verily they could make it.

And so then they went to the next thing is to try to get the other seniors in college incoming draft class and that's when they went to Memphis show starred Reggie White and Herschel Walker and and I got I think got recruited by Don Klosterman. I know British Gen. Hugh member Don Hospital, GM of the Rams for years, Carol Rosenblum, and so he had left the Rams was never in the LA express and with Gilman and said Gilman was man he was coming less than 70 years old at that time, 35 until the one that coach John Hagel and he was Nick the West Coast only views of the loss was. It's almost as recruiting the and the other side is that if there's anything as of the first pick Sam Weiss and obviously for much different know environment and should look on their way man speech elementary school here really jump lately we have Gary Zimmerman will be a protocol for working Joe go town so that a bunch of guys in there to play right away and have fun. So I didn't. I decided that the Internet you Reggie White Knight become close friends at the pool bowl in the All-Star game and I have my dad helped him find an agent we are causing when he went to the registrable gave me the in my mind the middle ability to say go this week it's going to be okay. So that's what I did and you didn't and you wound up obviously in South Tampa. How did you wind up in San Francisco. Steve is finally going up the wall so you what you want to use about make it happen. We heard that you come out a free agent and then of course NFL PA yard still kind of bitter about it that they negotiated all of our rights to a supplemental draft and that's when I like number one to find out there. We Perkins shows up at the Lena Bennett gets fired and Ray Perkins tells me that he thinks Lexi's NEH travelers like Steve and I feel like this respect, but that's when I was treated to Cargill who was an equally bad team and I had made a great relationship with you: Houston owner of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers of time and in a trust relationship and it only know of three months before your might quote electrolytes near the guy I want to build a team around you. The kind of guy I want your whatever story I got the call from reported your lawyer treated the St. Louis Cardinals I call you goal is a mystical come on man you know you don't really record like a white male three months later, Neil Joshi am so sorry I over control of what you can send me to St. Louis to match is not just raw, and so he could hold on a minute three: exit look I mix that three you go and find a place where you feel like you feel good.

Will try to make that work, and that would open up the door for Bill Walsh to give me a call and come to Provo, Utah working on and after that workout. He and I were best friends and nothing left but did you know what I mean obviously you know Montana standing did you have any of it happen rich so Bill shows up as reason why I'm recruiting Steve Joe's had a second back circuit. Just last week, and that you know back surgery. There's no way he knows greatest Joe Montana is his back is not a bill to make it so we need somebody come in and be ready to take over and so for me, I told Bill the time, but coach, I'm I'm under go play like I'm I brother the law school than the desiderata watch America watch so you tell me I want to wish anything bad on Joe, but if you tell me that this is an opportunity that I'm taking, and I remember I discrete story, I am church of the thousand times with the first practice like I'm with my mother early ready to go, and I've never met Joe Montana my life a joke on the jogging, I think much the first thing Kurt did not look like he's on his way out and current abilities coach wanted culture. Joe looked pretty good and he gave it a shrug of wry looking smile. Now that I'm gone now. You remember the next four years. It was on so that's what he said Steve was on that she was on because I did was awkward from the very beginning because I wanted back up Jody want me to be there so was like up beginning so but here we were so elated we made the best of in one-on-one soup bowls of SEP's and everything else. So when you finally wanted told Gary Plummer.

In that same essential also take the monkey off my back.

The last several minutes of our conversation. That's also the monkey right like that's it right coming, especially when no not Tom Brady is been here 20 years or more can do what it takes to be stuck seven times doable at the time there was already two Super Bowl ended up with four and an unheard-of kind of success price at time and so yeah and then so the city you get, the city becomes an embodiment of the success and so the next guy will you can't you can't go south to north and that's why it's into this day, I might think that you are likely to relapse. Still have to own the fact that this is a town where you Super Bowl your your own form. What about and think that's the probably true Steve Young here is episode of NFL icon Steve Young again on ethics Saturday at 10 Eastern time and you can stream ethics right here on the Roku channel and check it out on Saturday night. Stevie you just mentioned glance and drop below and then when droplet was sticking around with Lance. There is 888. It's kind of like you know had Montana moved on and then you are getting the rains in Montana still stand.

You know I that's what I was thinking it oddity the question and no one would've thought it not, you may not Kyle or John was the general manager thought that it was a chance that Jimmy would not find a home that all value for the 49ers and Virginia just a nap so they ended up back with each other and now you saw last week, there's this edge of resentment that's been built for like like naturally right you been rejected want to get in and so I'm I'm slightly concerned about going forward with the relationship with Jimmy and with the trial. John is just can wait. Can we display all the things that happen we still keep in our profitable relationship because he tends just make sure it's creatively tense right not topically tends and and I think I'll be of that of the fine line throughout the year. Expect and how things go, because there certainly a lot of broken glass between everybody and the like.

Like any big time highly sought after job in the world. You gotta be able have thick skin.

Gotta be able to move beyond know the rigor of the moment, so we hope all air everyone in the in the 49ers can do that especially on those three guys because if they can't find a proper way forward then where we know that it gets really kinda tough so what's the toxic part of it. The fact that you know Jimmy took the pay cut to be the backup and he's now the starter again and not much hassle. What he got was about it like he's 3414 12 Super Bowl want to couple change again and now they're telling him you will want you will really want you in working what you go drop some else were your your done so then he has to take all that success in his mind and make sense of it.

Like why am I being released. Why am I being fired and what you don't want to do naturally say what's because I'm not getting sick.

I'm not doing my part. You take it as well. There idiots you now that is around you say that everyone the priest to you was there when you think you don't take the full measure of why you're being let go why you're being fired as a part of what you've done so you can learn and grow in you, you get to build resentment and victimization and so that goes on for six months through his injury and was told of how loud can't wait to get out of there. You know that by the forget those guys and on about all I heard those words that know but understated human nature of the out screw those guys you believe are better off somewhere else: you start talking to think about that for six months back in the same spot and maybe if you don't have those really those conversations and make things more positive. You had your ending up together remarried when when you haven't really solve the original problem right and I guess then you can also remember the good times of that first marriage in the first half of that, you know Sunday night game in Denver and then in the second half of that Sunday night game in Denver was all the reasons why they were there wanted to break up in the first place right and so right and and I guess nobody blackmailed Jimmy Gee into signing a contract is I put either. So what you think about Jimmy.

Jesus just came and matched with Shanahan's equity and what you think. Steve thought Kyle was innovative people to come open. It is often there. It took the grinders office in a sense that the grinders office for preparation and it's it's really an embodiment of the case of what he's trying to do on the field and Jimmy by his own admission, is not one wing it. I want to just let it go. I want to be like to have the subject is one of the let 'er rip and so there is an and the great grinders and other data through the years of the guys that are the E that's Tom Brady Manning, breeze and Rogers a crying right through the data and there's guys like James one thing and nearly got lucky just wear them. Just let me rip Quantico and there's highs and lows in the highs and lows. Kyle, I want to write the right height and Jimmy wants to write the highs and want to write the highs and then you know how to resolve the lows and I think that's why don't the two of them have to find a possible way forward so they could find a place where it Jimmy I need you to do extra here and coach.

I need you to help me here knows what kind of conversations that were happening right now Steve Young here in the rechargeable, psychological, and social circle here because again in your will see it on Saturday night and the icons episode and you'd mention it sent from some of the times you heard about my coaching lefties to it tonight man. You know, I know how deep you are into the Twitter verse Steve Young, but somebody slipped the video of tours. Deep Throat was to make it look like he's a right-hander and I'll be honest with you I was way more impressed when you start talking to you here after you said, but there is a bias write clearly, you, you overcame it you got a bus in the Hall of Fame out what your advice to to up after three huge gains in huge weeks and and and how viable do you think he is with this Dolphins offense to shock everybody in, and maybe do it all what he thinks the likely Mike McDaniel cannot instruct cows and the same topics that I would love to be a part of the difference students but working is competent to the speed and how we deliver the football and allows all of his athletic ability, outlook. We recognize every athlete has limitations in which to but you can see the full measure of the last three weeks of what he can get accomplished so as long as he stays with somebody who really brings out the most in which ending Mike is doing goes without doing the math to be the key.

And that's like and then as your successful lefty writing goes away like it just does.

But it's geared my rich. I want to leave it behind because I why is it I noticed like 10% of the population is lefty. But why is it that there are zero, other than to out before two of them zero for number of years of 64 jobs in the NFL zero lefties and through the years handfuls of lefties in the league ever and so obviously the bias is real in baseball is not there, like if you're lucky or cool get paid more pitch, but that's one reason the football football is very right candidate what I could've been richer find right the adapter to be what you all worked out in the end, I'd love watching you on ESPN your awesome cellular Matthew like I got you right back at you. It is II cherish that and a few senior episode. It's dynamite. It's great now I can't wait before and I will watch you can love NFL icon Steve Young Saturday night 10 Eastern on ethics thanks the time CVB will love it right back at you Steve Young football Hall of Famer can class of 2005 and again you can stream ethics on the Roku channel start a free trial.

On another note were doing our best to keep the Buccaneers game here Sunday. I have assured the NFL that the only disturbance your Sunday is when the box kick ass which he tweeted out holding up a Buccaneers flag with the Chiefs slated to play Tampa on Sunday night on NBC and the NFL apparently has heard from all the authorities, the relevant authorities down there and checked all the boxes and it is been announced that the game will in fact be played at Raymond James Stadium as scheduled on Sunday night as the boxer currently practicing in South Florida and the Dolphins facilities. The dolphins are in Cincinnati tonight so everybody kind of pitching and pitching together and were glad to hear that in to our caps in the authorities all over the state of Florida helping people out trying to bail them out and certainly get ready to take their minds off of things with the game in Tampa Monday Night Football is going to be played in San Francisco or Santa Clara where the Rams the Niners play a huge game in week number four game that can be heard on Westwood One. I will be sitting on the chair of the host chair of pre-and halftime of that game on Westwood One as I do every single Monday night, and thanks to our friends.

Westwood One pitching together. I bring you assume China had yesterday with the Rams quarterback joining here now on the rich eyes and show is the quarterback of the world champion Los Angeles Rams getting set to take on the 49ers on Monday night football. Matthew Stafford item Matthew. I'm doing good as you get used to that being referred to the world champion Los Angeles Rams started the season I feel like it changes everything for us.

We just go back to just another team hunt for another one but had a good run last year Napster was. I am sure it was. And you know it was.

I imagine a nice little wake-up call week number one where you got to see right there in front of you what what it would take to to repeat, I imagine, is that the testing obviously not looking to played really well. We can plant our standard question about that, but it's a humbling game you notice this game, we can and we got you look across the NFL right now you see" you know, top-tier caliber teams losing every single weekend and the other parent is at an all-time high. So it's something that if you've been asleep for a long time to understand and it doesn't surprise you. You just have to go out there. Everything we and so what was that many biweekly like for you to sit in on that game as you did for for a week plus is you know it's it's tough anytime you lose like that you want to get back out there so you can but it was great stress that you have some time to reflect your getting me know about you guys back.

You know, later in training camp about going to play in the Super Bowl as well as injuries and surgeries and things like that. They have a little bit later so it's nice to have a couple extra days early on in the season to get guys back in and it was nice to about the next big pilot better.

Matthew Stafford year on the rich eyes and showed so I'm curious play work comp granted in last week against Arizona was that the same play in the Super Bowl that you guys ran on fourth and short and always do a different side of the field, but I'm just wondering was that the play that exact same or similar similar type letter. Yes, you know, and it had a little bit of a different feel to run so many of those motions just cannot pick and choose Xbox to hand those off and get an advantage in the guys on the outside executed really well is a great skiing on a little bit different feel to it for the defense enough my coaching staff and then obviously did a great job executing ideas just run the 200 m nice. You not given the fund, you know, I asked in this prior to the home opener on Westwood One in the same spot that were talking right here Friday or Monday night game and I asked him about that play because you would kind of given me a little bit of a heads up on it. When you are on the NFL network set prior to the scheduled release shown your kind enough to be the guest of kick that all off he gave me his perspective on how that play was born in almost never happened, then obviously got uncorked it the biggest moment of your lives and careers in the football field. Can you walk me through your perspective on on that big fourth and short play, and there is a lot of a lot of hours and that play and you know some of them prettier than others and others. Some send in practice at the doorway were try to figure out a reason beyond my cadence arena silent cadence every IV this that and the other end. I just try to figure that out climate out as well as he possibly could keep asking about the time talking about it and came to Sean like they were fairly confident that if you call this thing really get the thing done in and the timing and the view of the feel that play that we are able to get done really helped in any future moment a big variant prime one point say because a cup made it sound like me days I forget you guys are going to get. It was just take this out of the playbook and forget that Heather's points in the week. Sometimes it is like a let's say this is for another time to get enough yet plenty of other good stuff and and that's part of being a great coach who is not only when the pair down and when the trust requires him and he's got a great gift that is able to trust us on how women it was one that he felt strongly about. We just need to find out how to executed the right way to make it come to life.

I had executed the best way to work out for us and so what was it like from your perspective and for him to then after that whole place, birth, and then very I guess a choppy maturity to get that call in your headset.

Let's do that one.

At that moment yeah I mean I had a feeling you short outage fall in the game, you know, I didn't know it was before someone on our own and are inside of 50 and that you know in the final minutes but it worked out.

That's part of what makes him great is his ability to check is get the situations in and trusses as players together and executed and merely get it done in you know it mimics all those hours.

Another time you put in working on something when it comes to life like that in a big moment. It makes it all worth it. So when I spoke to Cooper's well earlier this year.

I asked him, since I knew you wouldn't. You know pounder just a little bit about what winning the Super Bowl meant to you in your career.

I asked him to speak for you. And he did by the way spoke very kindly of you as well. Now I ask you to ask you about him. He went down his chest to but a kid from Eastern Washington. Nobody really thought could amount to much. Collegially, let alone professionally is now Super Bowl MVP and and a guy who is a Triple Crown winner and not your first by the way, professionally, to be on the throwing end of it. What about cup and what he's become. And your relationship with him.

Matthew Stafford yeah I've spent much time with them is probably that anything made my career have unbelievable admiration and respect for how he goes about his his daily business of the way he carries himself as a teammate as a player. He's ultra-talented people, want to look at all the other things that he does so well you know whether the blocking of the teammate staff for this that the other and forget to look at who uses natural athlete and that's a pretty special method as well. You know, but as far as his career goals are somewhat more on front of him to be able to get this done at this early stage. Mr. Alice is happy to be a part of it.

I enjoy going to work every single day working with all these great teammates that I have been really enjoy working with him. In those days you know how many you have left you know playing together. It is to be in on global information department and Alaska's and even though their games are obviously and styles, different any similarities with Calvin Johnson and Cooper, from your perspective to artist workers and around to the guys that you know just competed about with or without the football is as good as anybody have been around in and sadly pretty similar guys when it comes to you know who they are often feeling humble guys come from, no really great backgrounds where you know, hard work, dedication being a great teammate.

All this core fundamentals that were not instilled in them by their parents and and I just continued to show up. We can only get B in high school, college or pro football so lucky to be a part about those guys.

Love get a chance to work with both of them in your Odyssey have been more left to Matthew Stafford couple minutes left with him prior to Monday Night Football against the 49ers manager seems that there always there and funny right this 49ers team three times last year. Now here we are in week number four what is the challenge that this team presents to you Matt you say really well coached both authentically and effectively.

There is sound and with their physical unit. Great job.

The runaround and didn't on defense. You know, I know the challenge for us, just like in every single day and it always starts up front right. They want to run the ball on offense. I did a great job step in and they want to penetrate the defensive line spot, you know whether it's in the run game of the past him to get a good break B in more physical team Yunnan on Monday night, but there always is a big time challenge and record players to music across the board on both authentically and defensively they got great players make impacts on the gaming it's always a battle on enjoy going to battle against them.

You know it's it's one that was new to me a little bit last year just in first time in and arrange uniform but that you know the rivalry has no quickly quickly been ingrained in me I'm sure and is an amazing amine you begin been around this league so long where anything is possible.

The Jimmy Gropper was a starting quarterback there still, it's a wild wild league happenings you happens fast and having slow in sentences is right.

You know, X is one of those things where you just don't know and and I was a really tough injury enough to trade bikes and Jimmy's really qualified, click here. Mandy's extent great things for them when he's got an opportunity and taken the Super Bowl's nasty championship game studies that is really got. Have you noticed the target on the back that all Super Bowl champs have where all 16 used to be you now 17 opponents that you have treats you as if you're the figurative Super Bowl W. Notice that I got a great meal, great, great efforts against against the first three opponents is no question about that, but I guess the NFL. I feel like that's every week out there did what last year. Last week you know that the teams that I've been a part of that event successfully shut up every single week understanding that no one yet about their privet net three NASCAR window if you don't then doesn't matter what you did last week. Last year the result of being a failure so index can only take a hearing and just understand that it is a week to week business is clichd and is frustrating is that is for some people to hear and understand.

But that's that's all we have to live because that's the truth aren't so off you off the map as I always like to do with you couple for you before let you go.

Matthew Stafford you talk to Stetson Bennett. You reach out to him Germany would connect with them. I don't.

I'm a fan from afar and I'm not one of the better Georgia alumni, probably when it comes to connecting with the you know places that I know more coaches on the old guy that knows the cages now and some guys in the in the in the front office type situation, but I'm a huge fan from four-minute really good football team and and they're fun to watch again.

Did you stemming you see what the kid is making himself. I mean the opportunity because the conversation well you know what, he's not even in the Heisman conversation last two years. Now yeah he's yet here this is really fun a lot I mean is just a you know as well as guys that is really athletic people give enough credit for what I think he throws a really well.

He obviously understands what they're trying to get accomplished player and play out doesn't reach out to get the ball right place, and she believes that he has a ton of fun, which is that which is half the battle is well.

Speaking of fun to watch.

Would you use that term to describe Andrew woodworks television analyst career so far, I think so. I think so. We were in a little finishing up a Thursday practice.

I was walking to go. You know, go back in the office a little bit thin and you saw the TV in. I believe these include Lindsay in the stands and the dog pound of the bunch of fans a big bone out there. I don't know what was going on but my guy was in a different spot that he was a year ago. I know that still unhappy fortune them on, you know, love, and that he's doing well and not no phone calls and base with some of the banged up offense of lineman that you're doing now, not on our list that I think he said in his role. I still still catch up with and have breakfast with them every once in the same except let's I think his playing days are done okay and what's the most Los Angeles moment you've experienced since moving to the West Coast. What hello Matthew, I mean there's there's plenty not what is just something you know some sightings I would say some people that I've seen you not remunerated this drop your kids off at school and you see some people that are clinical really famous and and really interesting 365 days ago I dropped them off at a school in Detroit and would have ever thought I'd see anybody that was you know that stature but it's it's been fun. It's not a lot of fun. My family loves it. Why centigrade family kids 11 and so that's really all that management continued. You've picked up on when people say let's hang out here in LA they don't really mean that right like Lexus have you picked up on that if you got treatment that LA treatment. Yeah, I mean I have some interactions of the bunch also.

Okay, but I'll use that one myself. If I may try to get out of. Let's let's try right here. Do you want to hang out with us are you sure it's a look at some of the books you were born your man is born here Matthew you were born to be in Los Angeles thanks the time greatly appreciated down the road. That's Matthew Stafford of the Super Bowl champion LA Rams while having heard that package and I lifted yesterday, having heard that that's the first time I realized two things. One, what a missed opportunity when he called himself the natural I could've said he's the natural I would say you missed life. I met John that I would've extended like you know when to leave the room you going to leave it right. It would've extended it to the May Brown's head explode on my automated has a headache's head exploded when a Jewish class have unnatural and I don't know.

You're the natural navigation ever but never so used to being beat down in their originality to miss the opportunity and everything is based on out how naturally he was like it was put some on the books and he's just nude here in Southern California. In our one true breeze said let's get something together for pink along essays and in Southern California a long time how he knew. Do you think he means it like I'll never play pickle volume is likely to know the same people.

I believe you would. It would be like a charity thing like set up so that you SoCal based nothing on unscented. As we said that I was late when you go into Louisiana okay he's here management's time. I think he spends time in both communities, but I do believe he Southern California Benton so it could happen. It could happen seem like the type of not having a name is it like it's a fight. If I reach out to. Let's get something on the books and I know I got us they drive across LA that's the problem. That's not a he's not LA geographically on sound like Donnie is down in San Diego and that's a whole the whole day a whole day is applicable here.

People he wanted two hours to have lunch there but you can play pickle both true breeze and translated the grant. I know I don't mean to go high register, and I think it would be great and I think he was sincere and I mean I just heard that I would Stafford speak of the picking up kids at the school line. Susan told me that she saw the kind of a famous person dropped the kids. We got there.

That's Los Angeles not plan. I was a little bit is in a state that could be in this room, wait a minute on the second she wants. She asked me if I wanted to hang out who did. I asked her if I want to hang out when you first dated just yell it's to manage my own life to my why I stink at comeback care prices, salty rust and yes my top five missing pieces of the NFL season is the missing pieces out there.

Five. List come back.
